Christ is our Advocate with the Father—We know God by obedience—Love not the world—Anti-Christs will come in the last days.
3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we akeep his commandments.
7 aBrethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.
9 He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.
11 But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and awalketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.
13 I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.
14 I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.
19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: [but] he that aacknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
24 Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the abeginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.
26 These things have I written unto you concerning them that aseduce you.
27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man ateach you: but as the same banointing cteacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
28 And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.
